Lang href > Royal Furniture Deposit

The furniture deposit, which was established by Empress Mary Teresa in 1747, was known as the “lumber-room” for centuries. Today it is biggest furniture museum in the world. Its collection has more than 160 000 objects – from a simple potty, all the way to the royal throne. At the most famous trading street of Vienna - Mariahilferstrasse, there is an amazing oasis of Austria’s imperial past. The huge 4-storeys, 6000 square metres collection introduces its visitors to the sectional history of furniture The endless collection of candelabra, mirrors, pictures, sanitary machines and the rooms’ furnishing show the trends and fashions of the emperors of the past.
For hundreds of years anything that could be considered unnecessary or out of fashion, was taken to the granary. Here, you can not only see the emperor’s furniture, but also a few arranged rooms from the past centuries. There is also an empire-styled music room, an impressive Egyptian and arms living room, Sisi’s countryside chamber, the historicism-styled hunter’s room filled with antler-made tools and stuff, and the reconstructed office of emperor Franz the 2nd of Hofburg.

The museum’s collection just keeps growing, as new models of the postwar and modern designers are added. Fans of empress Sisi can also go behind the scenes of the 1955 “Sissi” movie. The special exhibit also includes furniture used in making of the movie, as well as watching selected scenes from the movie itself and a special exhibit dedicated to Roma Schneider – the actress behind the main role. On chosen Sundays there are also themed trips around the museum.
Open from Tuesday to Sunday between 10 am and 6 pm.
